Tostones (Fried Plantains)

Tostones (Fried Plantains)
  • 2 cups vegetable oil for frying
  • 3 plantains, peeled and sliced into 1-inch pieces
  • salt to taste
  • garlic powder to taste


  1. Heat the oil in a heavy skillet over medium heat. Place a few plantain slices in the oil, and cook until lightly golden in color, about three minutes. Drain on paper towels. Repeat with the remaining slices.
  2. While the plantain slices are still warm, place them one at a time between two sheets of wax paper, and flatten by hand to 1/4 inch thick. Return flattened slices to the skillet, and continue frying until golden brown. Drain on paper towels, and season with salt and garlic powder.
